Ellenbrook Early Learning Centre

Childcare near you

Operating from an architecturally-designed centre that’s been purpose-built for young children, it is the strong connections, smiling faces and supportive atmosphere within the centre that makes it an extra special place for children to learn and grow.

Learning journey

Children are encouraged to learn through play and be inspired by the natural world around them.

We know children are naturally driven to pursue what interests them, so we support this curiosity by joining them on their search for answers rather than simply answering their question.

Made to play

Floor to ceiling windows in our six rooms surround our huge nature-play playground.

Each of these rooms and outdoor areas flow through to each other, encouraging children to collaborate, socialise and develop inclusive relationships with others of different ages.

Ages and stages

Our six age-grouped rooms are named after Australian animals with our littlest friends starting in the Gecko room and our biggest friends in the Goanna room.

The younger children have their own outside areas and two early childhood teachers deliver our kindergarten curriculum to the older children.

Valuable experiences

As part of MiniChef Mondays children of all ages work together to follow a different recipe each week, using ingredients from our very own veggie garden to create tasty food.

Our children also love collecting food scraps to give to our worms and learning about how the worm farm works.

In addition to regular yoga sessions for anyone who wants to take part, Rock N Bop Tots is an optional program we run on a weekly basis.

Stay Connected

Parents at our centre love the peace of mind that comes with the app we use to communicate with them throughout the day. Xplor provides real time updates with photos about what your child is enjoying and discovering with their friends and educators.

Flexibility

Our flexible care options allow you to make the most of your childcare subsidy. As well as full day sessions we offer morning and afternoon sessions, mornings run from 6.30am to 12.15pm and afternoons from 12.15pm to 6pm.

Before and after school care is also available at our centre.

Location

We are situated a short drive from the end of the Tonkin Highway.

Our centre, which opened in 2018, is part of an adjoining community hub facility.

Danielle

Manager

I enjoy developing relationships with the families at the centre and watching children learn and grow through play.

I live in Ellenbrook myself, so I love the sense of community we’ve been able to create here.

It’s a real home away from home for those who come here.

Our nature play playground is such an amazing focal point, watching the children navigate the different elements, get creative and use their imaginations is such a delight.

I’ve been working in early childhood education since 2001 and I have a Diploma in Children’s Services.

Testimonials

‘"The professionalism that the centre marry with personalism is outstanding. The workers are fantastic, and you get a genuine feeling that people care for, not only the children, but the family also. I would recommend the centre to anyone that asks and would highly endorse the professional nature of staff and management. My son loves this place." - Garreth Lomax

"We recently enrolled our 16-month-old, and she has settled in so well! The girls go above and beyond in helping with all my little ones needs. Makes me feel so much better being able to leave her in someone’s care when they care so much." - Madelaine Whyte
